For some, riding is all about escaping some of the features of modern living, while for others it’s an excuse to indulge in the latest technology.

Garmin Australia have announced a host of new products and services, coming soon to Australia including Varia Vision™, an in-sight display that helps enhance cyclists’ road awareness.

“We’re extremely excited to announce such an innovative line of new devices to the Australian market,” said Matt DeMoss, General Manager for Garmin Australasia. “One of the most exciting announcements is the next device in our line of Varia cycling awareness products – the Varia Vision in-sight display. Cyclists can now easily view their data and receive alerts during a ride without needing to take their eyes off the road ahead.

Varia Vision is an in-sight display that helps enhance cyclists’ road awareness by putting information in their line of sight. Attaching to a cyclists’ sunglasses, the Varia Vision displays key data from a compatible device including performance data, turn-by-turn directions, incoming smart notifications and more. When paired with the first-of-its-kind Varia rearview radar system, Varia Vision warns users of traffic approaching from behind.

Featuring eight hours of battery life, as well as a glove and wet-weather friendly touch panel to rotate between data displays, Varia Vision makes it easier than ever for cyclists to keep focus while riding. Its adaptable mounting allows it to attach on either arm of the glasses with a fully adjustable arm and eyepiece for optimum display positioning. Varia Vision features a durable, weatherproof design while weighing approximately only 29.7 grams for maximum comfort, and its integrated ambient light sensor and colour display ensures readability in all conditions.

Connect Varia Vision with a compatible Edge device for integrated, customisable data screens to easily view performance stats and turn-by-turn prompts including distance to turn plus street name and directional arrows. Varia Vision also connects with Varia rearview radar for in-ride, in-sight visibility of vehicles approaching from behind.

Vision also features vibration alerts for performance, navigation, or cycling awareness prompts, as well as incoming smart notifications allowing riders to receive alerts for incoming calls, texts and more without taking their eyes off the road.
